just saw the local forcast on the 6 o'clock news. said we had a slight
chance for isolated rain and storms fri-sun of this coming weekend. i guess
it will do like last week and rain all around us, but not on us.......oh let
us pray, "lord, save the crops and the flowers and the gardens!"
maybe we will blessed with rain also.
It rained up in Maine Saturday night. All weekend rain was predicted
for my home area down in Mass. We drove home from Maine on Sunday
through rain. Got close to my area, and it stopped. We didn't get a
drop of rain on my gardens down here. I'm doing a nekked garden
raindance this evening! :o)

I think my husband's works just fine..........................(still
Sorry - couldn't resist - but seriously now.
You must have looked at your local forecast before you made your turtle. I
bet if we did it (the turtle thing!) again saturday - it will rain sunday
(even though they said this morning we will only get about an inch)
We were only supposed to have a 20% chance of rain but they had said that
pretty much every day for weeks before my spit-take. I'll be honest,
though, I chose to do it in the middle of an ancient native American
encampment site. I think the spirits of those old Americans might have
sensed the urgency in my spit. I only have a few days to search that
field for artifacts before the crops get too big and I couldn't search
well without rain. It rained the next day and I hit the motherlode in
that field. I'd like to think it worked like that, at any rate.
Now that makes more sense to me. wonder if an old civil war battleground
would work as well................plenty of them around here. this has
already become the 2nd driest season on record for our area. the expected
inch won't even put a dent in our problem. it probably won't even take an
hour for the ground to soak it up. I'm beginning to think we need a
tropical storm with lots of rain, but with out the winds and thunderstorms
What do you think, Buderschnookie?
If you want, Rachael, I'll go to my 5000 Spells book and look up the spells
for rain again but I think the turtle was, by far, the easiest to do.
When you made your turtle, did you remember the tail? I think the tail is
very important since that's sort of the... um... water end. :)))
Yeah - he remembered that. you must have saw my local forecast b4 i
did.......... a few hours after my comment about a tropical storm, they did
a break-in thing on the tv about TS Barry! looks like we are finally gonna
get some much needed rain! not too much - but just enough
somebody can stop dancing up here in Milwaukee. we are looking at another week
rain. sigh. Ingrid

TS barry only brought us about 1 &1/2 inches of rain. Didn't even begin to
touch the now almost ten inch rain deficient. It's so dry here that it
didn't even take an hour for all the rain to dry up. Oh well, I guess we
are gonna have to keep praying, dancing, spitting, and snake killing around
here. Either that or go ahead and agree with Frag that he must have "magic"

Sorry! I thought i put she/he?. that's what i meant to put anyways - my
mind was moving faster than my fingers. believe it or not - they actually
put out a twister warning for my county at the same time I had started
writing that post. I was mainly thinking about getting it sent and getting
the comp off. We just had 2 more inches of rain in 30 minutes. I guess our
spit must just be working in spells.........i still agree with the theory of
your rain being because of the location.
That's right Charlie, during inclement weather, it's best to keep your
lighting rod in your pocket. Uh, is that your storm coming around the
